Quebec will host four life sciences events between 2019 and 2021. Together, these events should generate almost £3 million in economic spinoffs for Québec. 

The conferences include the 10th Canadian Conference on Dementia in October 2019; Canadian Veterinary Medical Association Convention in June 2020; Canadian Society of Internal Medicine Annual Meeting in October 2020; and the 75th Annual Meeting of the American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine (AACPDM) in October 2021.

"Life Sciences is one of the economic sectors where Canada holds a competitive advantage and is therefore a key component of our strategy," said Chantal Sturk-Nadeau, executive director, Business Events Canada.

"With a vibrant life-sciences community including over 30,000 investigators in 17 medical schools and more than 100 teaching hospitals and research institutes, we are right at the intersection of innovative ideas and memorable experiences, where Life Sciences leaders connect people and purpose in conferences from coast to coast."

Mr. Pierre-Michel Bouchard, CEO of Québec City Business Destination, added: "Québec City has distinguished itself with its strong economy and vital key industries. With dynamic researchers, investments and businesses, Québec City life sciences are thriving and becoming world-renowned for their innovations.

"All this booming activity makes Québec a perfect destination for scientific meetings and events, specifically for the life science industry."
